The Simple Dollar’s Review
Another heavyweight in the world of business credit cards, the WorldPoints® Rewards for Business™ Visa® Card offers a simpler approach than many of its competitors. The rewards program is a bit stripped down, but still very good – and in return, the card has no annual fee and absolutely no extra fee to add cards to your account for employees.
The awards scheme is pretty straightforward with no superfluous frills; you earn one Bank of America WorldPoint for every dollar you spend and double points at gas stations, restaurants and office supply stores. The points carry a value of roughly 1 cent per point and are redeemable for all sorts travel and merchandise. There is no maximum to the number of points you can earn, but they do expire after five years.
Now the only major shortcoming of this rewards scheme is that there are no bonus points earned for air travel, but the upside is you’ll probably save over $200 a year in fees. Plus, nine months of 0% intro APR and bonus rewards on office supplies make this card ideal for businesses that are just starting up. So if you have a new or locally-based small business and you’re not spending thousands of dollars a year flying around the country, this is undoubtedly one of the best choices for a business credit card. It’s nothing too fancy, but it’s straightforward and absolutely hassle free.

After dramatically reining in credit card issuance during the recession, some banks have started to loosen...
